Spectrum -> GitHub Discussions migration

Simple question: As GitHub seems to own Spectrum, will we be able to migrate all the threads from a Spectrum community to the new GitHub Discussions feature?

Hi there! :wave: Welcome to the Community!

I’ve checked with the Discussions team, and they say:

Unfortunately, there will not be the ability to migrate Spectrum threads to Discussions. We heavily considered this option, but there are many blockers, most notably reconciling accounts from Spectrum to GitHub.

They add, however, that it may become possible to write scripts with the public Discussions API to unlock this ability as the product matures.

As Discussions is still at a very early stage, perhaps you’d like to submit a feature request through our official product feedback form so that our product team can see exactly how you’d like it to work, and which areas they should prioritize?

Thank you @yamiacat. I will send some feedback through the form.
